Presentation to Cabinet

▪ The COVID-19 crisis presents an unprecedented hallenge, unmatched since the Spanish Flu and the Great Depression. The latter decimated 6% of South Africa’s Population.
▪ It also presents an opportunity for South Africa to accelerate the implementation of some long agreed-upon structural changes to enable reconstruction and growth.
▪ These will positively impact on key economic and social sectors which will facilitate a more inclusive economy whilst unlocking local production and export potential.
▪ This will require that South Africa sequences and phases its priority areas with a view to deepening the fight against COVID-19 whilst rebuilding the economy.

Beyond The Virus

▪ This presentation draws on consolidated inputs from all departments, submitted to the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, as well as work done by the National Joint Intelligence and Operational Structure (NATJOINTS)
▪ It also considers input from industry and sector associations
▪ The risk-adjusted approach was developed through collaboration between the economic cluster departments and the Department of Health
▪ This proposal takes into account the advice of the Ministerial Advisory Committee that the high-point of the virus spread is likely to be in September, which requires a proposal that covers the next 6-8 months.
